Andrew McCarthy, A Senator who used his GOVERNMENTAL authority to hold hearings questioning people esp. those in govt or entertainment, as to their loyalty & possible affiliation with the Communist Party a Known accomplice to an enemy of the United States, The USSR. There were many many communists in the US engaged in very subversive actions, particularly Hollywood & Govt.; however the disreputable methods in ‘finding guilt’ cast an ever widening net hauling in the innocent with the ‘guilty’. The “Red Scare” should have scared the crap out of you in more ways than one; both in that there were so many ACTUAL COMMUNISTS in the US & how our representatives were dealing with it.
Glenn Beck, Talk Show Host, has shown people, esp. in government, saying things in their own words, then questioning if they said this then, when was their ‘come to jesus moment’ where they suddenly become capitalists? & if they haven’t had one [as either the question was ignored, or the comments were dismissed as jokes in spite of plane policy] how have they been able to get into govt.? and what is their agenda!? Beck’s are more the actions of a JOURNALIST [not that he’s ever claimed to be one, although he’s read Walter Lippmann…].
I might remind you that there were no witches in Salem [or Europe, where they lasted a LOT longer], just psychotropic ergot poisoning. There WERE Communists in US Govt. & Hollywood, not that it excuses the methods.
Beck never called for Self Avowed Communist Van Jones to be fired, much less imprisoned.
Jones being ‘Green Jobs Czar’: Green Jobs being encouraged by anything but the free market is itself Anti-Capitalist!
Obama was raised by Communists, mother, father, step father, & grand parents, his mentor Communist-Poet Frank Marshal Davis was the one who convinced Obama to go to Chicago.
Obama In his own words
"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists, and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed neoclonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarcy, " -Dreams From My Father
Need I list Obama’s record as Prez? A Not so Trojan Horse [defined as Single Payer by its author] “Obama-Care”, The Keynesian Stimulus, The Financial Bill institutionalizing “Too Big To Fail” [FYI BAILOUTS ARE SOCIALISM], Obama’s “Rural Council” the agenda 21 nightmare of regulation, & The Current “Jobs Bill” IE 2nd ‘stimulus’ of around 1 Trillion dollars.
If he’s a capitalist, I’m a giraffe.
